YMCA Camp Loowit, located at the base of Mt St. Helens, provided fond memories for numerous campers.

Camp Loowit campers were provided with a sustained, creative, educational experience in democratic group living in the out-of-doors. Through the use of natural surroundings and under Christian auspices and trained leadership, YMCA camping seeks to help the camper achieve his fullest potential in terms of mental development, physical well-being, social growth and spiritual awareness.


     
Camp Loowit History   Campfire Songs
Most of us never really knew what the history was behind the camp. We all came here for a week of comfort away from the parents. But we all learned that the Cabin Counselor was tougher than our parents... speaking for the boy camp sessions.   Jane Ellen Avery, has provided us her memories of camp songs. Some of you might remember most of these. Even the webmaster knew a few with help from his brother and fellow campers.

  Once you look at the schedule it will all come back. Do you remember the bell by the flag pole? How about all those events we particaped in?
     
Campfire Stories   Post Cards, Camp Map & Images
This section is lacking, I wish I knew some scary stories, like "Prop Man, Hatched man and 13 Cellars". This is why I started this page. I wanted to tell my daughter a story, but I forgot them all. So I decided to create a Camp Loowit home page.   Do you remember we were required to send our parents a post card from the candy store? Sure the candy was great, in addition to our Care Packages from our Parents. Be sure to see the images of the camp.
